grateful: week 30

inspired by my reading of the happiness project by gretchen rubin, i am instituting monday "gratitude" posts (read here for more detail), where i will list "3 things i'm grateful for" from the previous week.

the 3 things i'm grateful for this week are:

1) i mostly completed my gift list for this christmas.  next step: actually buying them...

2) i was home in pure michigan for the weekend!  i know it's only 2 weeks until i'll be there again for thanksgiving, but i was missing the fam just a little too much.

3) while i was home, i spotted little women (the 1994 version) on my parents' wall unit.  seeing as how it's my favorite book, i've watched it more than a few times, but i hadn't in awhile, so i popped it in and i'm so glad i did.  just read the quote from it below.  and although it's far from a christmas movie, it's definitely a great little kick-off to the holiday season.

this week's blog love:
  • since i love all things audrey, casee marie's style profile on ms. hepburn on the girl who stole the eiffel tower just had to make this list!
  • the quote above comes from melissa of design delight's "this week" round-up post.
  • melissa's of the inspired room "10 ways to get inspired for christmas" post was a fantastic way to start getting me in the spirit.
  • lana of lanalou style always has the loveliest images.  this tea and jam photo collection is no exception! 
  • the quote jess of makeunder my life posted over the weekend really made me think.
here's to another grateful week.

  2. making the list is absolutely the hardest part!

  3. Love the idea of posting your gratitude. I bought that book awhile ago, but still have yet to read it.

  4. thanks, melissa! you should definitely read the book, it's a game-changer :)
